Create and renew: Two powerful tactics to confront an industry wracked by complex and bewildering changes. That’s the theme of the WWD Apparel & Retail CEO Summit, Oct. 24-25 in New York City.
This Summit will be a meeting point for some of the sharpest minds in the business who will address fickle consumer tastes, a complex socio-economic backdrop and how the digital juggernaut is disrupting retail and compelling brands and stores alike to innovate like never before.
The Summit also will mark the second year of the WWD Honors that recognize the achievements of key industry executives and companies.
Join us for two days of the Summit, as top retailers and brand executives, dealmakers and thought leaders from around the world share their wisdom, experience and advice.
